Biking the world’s most dangerous road

A backpacker in Peru I met has been spending the last half year or so bumming through South America. He told many thrilling tales, but the one that really stood out being his biking trip down the world’s most dangerous road, right outside La Paz, Bolivia.

In the Youtube video below, you’ll see what appears to be a not-too-wide bike trail. In fact, buses and trucks routinely drive–and pass each other–on this so-called road. And you can share in the experience, though I highly recommend against riding in through on a bus.

Biking trips are routinely offered on the road, but be prepared to face rain, sleet, snow, mudslides, landslides, Yeti attacks, and oh death.
